Metropopular is an animated short film about what the cities of America would say to one another if they could talk. Frantic about a popularity contest in which these cities are competing, they jockey for top position while arguing between themselves. Highlighting their separate personalities, each city had his or her own reason why they should be ''America's favorite city.''

Oh my, I'm still laughing!

"I HAD A TEA PARTY!! DID ANYONE ELSE HAVE A TEA PARTY???"

Once I saw this, I had to pass the link to some friends who also were in need of a good laugh.

THANK YOU for uploading this!

Subject: So right on, but one thing
I love it. Just heard about the video via a link from the planning e-newsletter Planetizen and I gotta say, you've got it just about right. But lets not forget, while I type this review in the shadow of Jefferson's Rotunda, that Charlottesville has been rated the "Best Place to Live" by many obscure and somewhat-noteworthy publications. Just please don't tell the aliens about Monticello. ;)

Subject: You have to know the stereotypes
As a Non-North American I couldn't quite get all of the stereotypes presented in the picture. Only some of the cities gave me a clue about specific peculiarities attributed to its citizens.

Being thus that ignorant, I could lean back and concentrate on the overall artistic quality of the movie. Although I can't refrain from admitting that some parts are quite funny, there is a bit too much shouting involved... The "characters" are childish and as though a part of a loud tv show of minor quality.

The amination is acceptable.

The conclusion OK.

If only this film as a little bit longer -- say an hour or so. :-) I found myself chuckling all the way through it. The stereotypes are perfect. The voices of the cities are great. The animation is flawless. There is very little -- if anything -- to dislike about this picture.

This movie gets the stereotypes down just right. They could have easily made it a bit longer by adding a couple more cities like Baltimore, Chicago or Seattle and their distinctive traits.

Humorus view of the stereotypes spoken by the cities where they are thought to exist.
